Pushing the Limits of Innovation


At Disaster Lab, we're creating and implementing visionary technologies that tackle the most pressing issues facing our world today. From natural disasters, pandemics, new energy solutions, pollution and beyond, we're pushing the boundaries of what's possible, and driving the adoption of these game-changing technologies to make the world a better place.

The Disaster Lab supports the development of innovations which aim to prevent, mitigate, and foster faster recovery from climate-change related disasters in California and beyond — currently  focusing on wildfires, earthquakes, and ocean impacts.

We focus on those technologies with the potential to significantly improve prevention and response, particularly those with disruptive potential.



We're dedicated to finding new and innovative solutions to some of the world's most pressing challenges. We push the boundaries of what's possible in renewable energy and sustainable development, always seeking to create disruptive innovations that make a real difference.


We believe that the best solutions come from working together. That's why we collaborate with industry leaders, researchers, and end-users to create cutting-edge technologies and infrastructure solutions that are sustainable and resilient. We value the power of partnerships and believe that by working together, we can achieve more.


We're committed to building a more sustainable future for all; we understand the urgent need for sustainable and resilient infrastructure solutions that can withstand the toughest challenges. We value environmental responsibility and social equity, and we work tirelessly to promote sustainable living through the development of resilient infrastructure solutions and the adoption of renewable energy technologies.

We foster disruptive disaster innovations via a pipeline from the lab to the field.


We engage in targeted primary research to innovate in environmental technologies and disaster response.
